We've accidentally clipped one of our dog's nails too short and it's bleeding. Does this require a vet visit, or is it treatable at home?
Like any bleeding wound, you can apply first aid at home and see if that will help stop the bleeding.
Things like applying pressure, or just putting a bit of pressure around the foot or nail, and holding it there for a while will hopefully relieve the problem.
But, if the first aid hasn't stopped it, then pop down to the vet clinic because they have a few other options to try and help stop that bleeding and provide pain relief.
